Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Operation Paintball - Now closed, Sunol is better.
Directions
to the Field:
Take 680 N, exit 84 headed towards Sunol, make the right at the Ranch with the Spanish Name, head all the way to the back. Check their website though.
Review: Saftey: Very, very well enforced. 280fps field limit, regular chrono checks.

Hours: Owners show up around 9:00am, registration begins shortly after. This field usually hosts a lot of private events, so registration can take a bit longer than most people are accustomed to. Use the time to walk the field or get your gear preped. Play goes until 3, maybe a little after.

Fields: I've played here for a while, and the fields have remained mostly the same, however they've replaced their first field with a Sup Air field, which most players that frequent there don't care for. Otherwise, its a lot of fun. There are 3 fields: Sup Air which wasn't up most recently, Bunker ball: Fun course with close quarters play, lots of interesting bunkers and Rec Field, almost football field sized with lots of spindles, houses and shooting lanes. Note: If you're playing during the rainy season, expect lots of mud and puddles/small ponds. Summer its just hot.

Prices: Fair priced, good paint.

Rules: Unless you're in the advanced group, there is a no-bunkering rule, you run up onto the bunker and knock/pound on the bunker yelling surrender, the other player must step out of the game. And of course respect local wildlife that may be nearby.

Services: Have some tools, but don't loan out. However owners own a proshop at another location. Or at least they did, can't confirm if they are field only now.

Staff: Usually they're well staffed, however most recently it seemed they could've used 2 more refs for the day, however the Rob and his wife are very friendly and helpful.

Refs: Refs are cool guys, all players, will do paintchecks, but not excessively. Depends on your level of rapport with them.

Players: Expect a larger turn out during the summer with more diverse players, but this field does get a lot of people, varying skill. Very, very few elite types, most every one there is friendly and there to enjoy the game. I'd say 50-60% are minors, the rest are above that age (range 18-50). Rain and cold seems to scare some away, but there is a good core group of players that comes out, regardless of mother nature.

Facilities: Port-o-Potty, parkinging lot and drive way are in need of paving, but land owners won't allow that, so don't bring a car that you don't want getting muddy or seeing holes. Staging areas have greatly improved, full picnic tables and cubbies for gear, havn't heard of gear being stolen, but ya never know.

Food: Costco Hot Dog lunch, must pay for at registration as owners head out to buy the same day. Water, Soda, chips and candy available too. Barbeques allowed too.

9.5/10

EDIT 2/9/08: No rain, had about 35-40 walk ons, great day. Goto this field, its a lot of fun.
